Photos are changed at user-defined intervals, and they can scroll across screen and/or move as phone tilts.

Best LWP app There is not an other LWP with such a lot of options and with a variety of picuture sources. In comparison with other apps that support 500px, panoramio, etc. this is the richest in features app (for example you can view cache of downloaded images or set any combination of filters you need). Very responsive developer. Only a feedback and a donate button is needed ;)

Best LWP app, but still buggy There is not an other LWP with such a lot of options and with a variety of sources, but there are bugs left. Sometimes it refuses to refresh the wallpaper, just shows an empty message (a message with null length).
